Tipperary Hurdle

The Tipperary Hurdle is a Grade 2 National Hunt hurdle race in Ireland which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Tipperary over a distance of about 2 miles (3,219 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early October.

Prior to 2006 the event was known as the John James McManus Memorial Hurdle. It now takes place at a meeting which features both jump and flat races, and it is held on the same afternoon as the Concorde Stakes.
